That cinabench score jumped a ton, something was wrong with that first test. Maybe it wasn't a stable OC. Not bad though.

So your chip is hitting 4.6ghz. Is there any advantage to the 8150?

It may clock better with a lower voltage.

Yeah I think it was from windows updates that were going or something. Right now I'm sitting at 4.7GHz and the Cinebench scores only changed slightly.

8150 is the same except you start out a little faster from what I know. I'd save your money and do an 8120, get an enclosed water cooling system with the money you save. BTW I got a tin with 8120 too, so I don't know if that's just for a limited time or what. I just remember an AMD person saying that the 8150 was the only one that came with a tin instead of the usual box.

Ehhh, I haven't ran Prime 95 yet but I'm at 1.456V @ 4.73GHz with a 23.5 multiplier. It honestly overclocks really easy, I'm sure I'll get a few checksum errors in Prime 95 though however I'm able to run benches fine so far.

Have you messed around with overclocking the NB? I know that can have an effect on performance.

I already have a 2500k and real H20 unless you were just speaking in general. I personally won't touch one of these things while they have that insane power draw.

would you be able to provide some readings for power consumption on your overclock? hoping to upgrade from a 955 but the power draw shown for the 8150 seems really high. wonder if the 8120 is similar.

Nope only OC using the multiplier right now. It's very likely performance would increase from raising the freq. since my memory and NB would be running faster, I just don't want to do that quite yet.
